Locks Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new oil paintings by Philadelphia-based artist Neysa Grassi (b. 1951). Grassi’s seductive surfaces, built slowly over time through a meditative process of layering and burnishing, evoke geological and meteorological phenomena. Continuously emerging and dissolving, her atmospheric images yield a portrait of flux—a compressed record of the passage of time.
Each work takes months, sometimes years, to complete and the resulting paintings are hauntingly beautiful, emergent forms born out of a laborious communion of materiality and consciousness.
